First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Culture in conversation with actress Elena Drapeko He noted that no one could forbid him from hanging a portrait of Alla Pugacheva in the foyer of the Variety Theatre.

“This is not a question for me. If he violated the law and was deprived of citizenship of the Russian Federation, this is only a condemnation. We can only condemn, not ban,” said Drapeko.

Following the renovation of the theatre, which was completed at the end of October, audiences noticed in the foyer a black and white portrait of a singer who once performed at the cultural institution.

“I don’t understand at all why this has caused such controversy and public outcry. We have been working for a month and absolutely all folk artists of the USSR are hanging on our walls. Among them, of course, is Alla Borisovna. Why take it out? — aforementioned Variety Theater press secretary Karina Zakharova.

The institution’s artistic director, Gennady Khazanov, refused to answer the question about the portrait.
